Sultan has been on my to-do list ever since I read several delicious posts on mmm-yoso. Unfortunately, some of my family members aren’t quite as adventurous when exploring other ethnic cuisines.

This past weekend, the siblings were off on a trip to Sin City, so FH and I took the opportunity to check out Sultan, a Turkish restaurant specializing in Kebabs and Baklava. We invited along our friend Steve, who is always up for trying anything.

I love sponge cakes and I love easy recipes. So when I saw a three ingredient sponge cake, I immediately was intrigued.


The recipe is easy to put together and it only takes a few minutes to bake. I thought it was too good to be true, but the out come was a simple, soft, spongy cake. It isn’t overly sweet, which is how I prefer my sponge cakes.

So those amazing delicious fudgy salted caramel brownies (also known as Baked Explorations’ Sweet and Salty Brownies) didn’t last long. With the kids away, I might have eaten most of them..

And even as I was eating that last batch, I immediately knew what I wanted to make next: a bacon version. The idea comes courtesy of my fellow SD blogger, Three Dog Kitchen. Her version is even better than the ones I had time to make because she studded her brownies with cocoa bacon. I definitely want to try that next time, but I simply didn’t have enough time with these.
